HOUSTON. On Tuesday, Houston police said they were at an apartment complex on the southeast side as part of an investigation into a woman who had been missing for about a week.

Investigators were at the Sunnyside complex and blocked off the parking lot. The authorities were seen in the block on the second floor. It’s unclear what investigators found, but they said it was related to Obi’s disappearance.
Obie’s last known location was near an apartment complex on Lay Road, near Trinity Gardens in northeast Houston, officials said.
Officials did not say what Obi was wearing at the time of her disappearance.
Obi’s family members are desperate for answers, and Texas EquuSearch spent most of Sunday searching on foot and on ATVs.
The circumstances of her disappearance are unclear, but Texas EquuSearch founder Tim Miller said Obie doesn’t have a car and her phone goes straight to voicemail.
“Are we worried? Well, I mean, you know, we are, we are concerned. I mean, it’s just not in his nature,” Miller said. “We’ve covered a lot of areas… and just hoping someone has some information and calls us, calls law enforcement or maybe we get something from surveillance and, you know, let’s hope that we can get her back safe and sound.”
Lacastle Price said that she talks to her sister every day, so she is very worried.
“I talk to her every single day. Not a day goes by and I talk to her every day. And she wouldn’t have left without calling her son – she has four children,” Price said. “I can’t even express how excited I am.”
Obi’s family members said that she had never disappeared like this before.
According to Miller, Obi did not receive a check from the company she works for.
Tim Miller told KHOU 11 that Obie had a family member, Larry Guillory, who went missing in 2001. According to Miller, Guillory was later found dead.
